Nex 5n white balance questions
Dec 26, 2011

I have had issues with the 5n's auto white balance's interpretation of incandescent light. Its consistantly too red for my liking and I have been toying with various tweeks in the custom WB menu. My questions are: Can you use plain printer paper when setting up WB custom setup or must you use a grey card? How far away do you position the paper or card from the camera and should it be in direct or indirect light. Also, when trying to achieve proper WB, would attempting to equalize the RGB histograms serve toward that end?
Thanks Much!
